From the age of 18 I started working as a door supervisor in night clubs and bars. After working for 10 years in several towns and cities, I had developed an understanding of how important self-defence is. I have always been passionate about martial arts as it gives me the capacity to defend myself in any situation. I have learned various martial art styles such as Krav Maga, Savate, MMA and KFM before I started my journey with Defence Lab.
Four year ago I met James Boyle, a black belt in Defence Lab Martial Art. Training privately one-to-one with him made me think again about how can I defend myself against multiple opponents in the reality of the modern world. After just a few days of Defence Lab it started changing my perceptions and boosted my confidence in the reality of the street. I was fortunate to continue my training with Andy Norman, founder of Defence Lab and his crew members. This taught me the inner depth of the system through the different processes and procedures. Defence Lab is constantly adjusting and evolving. It has made huge impact on me and been a catalyst to change my life.
